Center for Advanced Materials Engineering

Transforming basic-research into applications to enable technology advancements

Quantum Technologies

The center of advanced materials is targeting emerging areas such as quantum materials for sensors and improvements in ion trap hardware. This is a rapidly growing area with projected market of $1.6 billion by 2026.

Our R&D includes the development application of solid-state defect color centers for use as magnetometers and quantum imaging. Additionally, we are focusing on improvements to the design and fabrication of ion traps using our precision machining and fabrication capabilities. The goal is to provide advancements in synthesis, fabrication, and quality of these nascent technologies.

We also have synergies with the center of advanced computing where quantum algorithms to better predict properties of materials are being used and developed. These computational tools aim to provide improvements to materials development and selection.
